The trouble is, you think you have time. Time to follow your dreams, to procrastinate, to figure it all out. To love…

Someday, we tell ourselves. We’ll have time to see the world, to tell our loved ones what they mean to us, to chase dreams that make our souls come alive. And to remember the dreams that we were afraid to face all along, brewing deep inside our hearts.

But the truth is, we don’t have enough time at all. And it may only hit us when we are ready to appreciate the moments we have left.

Can we learn to live with more urgency by slowing down to savor this life? At what point will the shock of our fleeting existence help us realize we can be all that we wish to be — starting today?

It may be time to walk alongside fear in pursuit of our greatest dreams. The ticking clock we inevitably grow to despise is a blessing, intensifying our human experience. We begin to run harder than ever before, while becoming more aware of each sweet breath. And when we finally pause to marvel at the beauty of this human experience and the possibilities within our grasp, time just stands still for once.

Time to live.

*”Time to Live” was inspired by a quote interpreted from Buddha’s teachings, “The trouble is, you think you have time.”
